My challenge card



I really thought this was going to be a super hard challenge. But you know what? It was actually easier than I imagined, thought the first card looks completely different than I imagined it would.

When I posted the sketch I had no idea whether I would use an image or a punched flower on the card. Turns out I used a little mixture of both-- trimmed out images of the flowers from the Office Accoutrement set. To make the flower even more of a focal point on the card I left the always artichoke mat free of any background stamps. In real life the elegant eggplant mat with its funky border (created quite accidentally with the slit punch) along with the flower decorate the card so well no background stamp is necessary.

This was a fun card to make. Hope you have fun playing along with this challenge as well!

I like the flower that you used on this card. It gives that little something extra. Great card. Thanks for sharing.

This is an awesome card Diane! I really like the paper you layered the sentiment on....neat edge! It is cold and rainy here today so I may get a chance to stamp if my husband can watch the baby for a bit. Or if she actually naps. LOL!
